Region Ustí – a European region to experience!

Region Ustí – a European region to experience!

The focus ison the border-crossing exchange between Czechs and Germans in the Euroregion Elbe/Labe. The region Ustí has the chance to present itself through artistic-cultural events in Dresden and Pirna. For this, people from Ustí are invited so it comes to a meeting and exchange between Czechs and Germans. Our Czech partner Collegium Bohemicum supports us in the fields of choosing the artists and participants and takes care of the public relations in Czech Republic. For this purpose there are events happening in Ustí as well that introduce the activities and offer lifts to Dresden and Pirna to visit the events.

Photo symposium: “Melodies of a Landscape”

At the end of September Czech and German photographers of the border region meet up in Mikulášovice to find impressions together they would like to capture photographically. The each four photographers from Czech Republic and Germany will wander both sides of the border, explore special places and meet local people. With that, content of this region that concerns the border-crossing cooperation is taken up: stories and fables, historic event, specific places and people.

The organisation in terms of content is taken over by artist and photograph Holger Wendland. The results of the symposium will be published in the form of stories and photographs in the series “pARTisanen” (pub. by Holger Wendland & Kultur Aktiv) and shared at the end of the projects.
